Stronger Than Ever -Expanded Edition - Rose Royce

Stronger Than Ever -Expanded Edition
Rose Royce originally formed in 1973 under the name Total Concept Unlimited and following tours of England and Japan with Edwin Starr fell under the influence of Norman Whitfield, Motown’s ‘psychedelic shaman’ who took them under his wing when he parted company with Motown.Their first commercial success under the Rose Royce moniker was on the soundtrack to the highly successful motion picture Car Wash. Throughout their career which produced evergreen hits such as Car Wash, I Wanna Get Next To You, Love Don’t Live Here Anymore and Is It Love You’re After, Rose Royce have maintained a well established fanbase throughout their career.Stronger Than Ever proves that Rose Royce were certainly plenty strong at this point in their career, working with a tight modern soul groove on Epic Records, away from their previous placement on the Whitfield label, even though Norman Whitfield's still very actively handling production here.As well as being a hit in the R&B charts the single Best Love made the top 20 in the Netherlands with the album making the top 30.

Press:-

"It’s a fine mix of ballads (Sometimesy Lady) and dancefloor cuts, namely Best Love and Still In Love, the latter redolent of Rod Temperton’s work with Michael Jackson.”

Good Feelin'
T-Bone Walker was one of the first musicians to play electric guitar on
record, and was a major player at the dawn of the R&B era, charting
with the classic "Call It Stormy Monday" in 1948 and building an
enviable reputation as a master blues musician and singer over four
decades until his death in 1974. Following a successful tour of
Europe with the American Folk Blues Festival in 1962, T-Bone returned to
France in the late 1960's to record LPs for Black & Blue and
Polydor, and from the latter label Good Feelin' won a coveted Grammy
Award in 1970 as 'Best Ethnic or Traditional Recording'. Shout Records
are proud to present another chance to hear the fine music in this
landmark album, which features the sax of 'Soul Makossa' hit-maker Manu
Dibango and the cream of local session men, the voice and guitar-picking
of T-Bone Walker having gained in maturity with the passage of years.
